Today marks the six month anniversary of my blog and I really can’t believe it. Okay so six months isn’t really that long I know, but when I started out, I didn’t know if I was going to make it to one month let alone six months.
I was very apprehensive about putting myself ‘out there’ and have second-guessed and questioned myself many times since. Sharing personal aspects of your life is a scary thing to do, especially when you don’t know how your blogging or writing will be received.
Thankfully so far, I have had nothing but positive feedback and lovely comments from friends, other bloggers, and all my lovely followers which I am so incredibly grateful for. I’m sure my blog is not for everyone; I’m not the best photograher, I write about anything and everything, and I’m sure sometimes people just don’t want to hear about how my day went! But I totally get that and I’m good with it too. We’re all different.
There are so many incredible bloggers out there, many of whom I have discovered since beginning this blogging journey myself, and it’s opened up a whole new world for me. I read about incredible places, I swoon over gorgeous fashion, I’m glued to every new beauty review that I can find. But what I’ve come to discover most is that the blogging community is a very friendly, kind, supportive and fun community to be part of, and I’m very glad I took the plunge.
No doubt there will be challenges ahead, especially as I’m taking some time out from my day job to focus more on blogging. But for once in my life I’m excited and not scared by that thought.
I’m averaging around 2,000 views a month with around 1,000 unique readers, and although that’s small in the grander scheme of blogging, I’ve been told that it’s a pretty good start.
I’ve been reading over some of my old posts, trying to decide which have been my favourite posts so far but there are so many to choose from:
There was one of my first ever posts Resolution Time where I told you all about the Year of The Holiday and how many places Dave and I want to visit this year, which so far is working out brilliantly…
There was the post where I was challenged to write Ten Random Facts About Me by another blogger which was so fun to write, and was a great way to get to know some of my fellow bloggers too…
There was the beauty review I did on the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette which has now become my favourite palette…
And I can’t forget about my beautiful wedding photography post Wedding, Photos, Love which is my highest viewed post to date…
It’s been great reading back on them all and remembering the year I’ve had so far. There have been ups and downs, but it’s been an adventure. If you haven’t already read them then please go take a look.
For now however, I just really want to give you all a big kiss and thank you all for coming on this journey with me! I hope you’re enjoying it, I hope I’m not boring you with my day-to-day musings, and most of all, I hope you’ll continue to come along on this crazy ride.
I hope you all have a lovely sunny Saturday.
